Situated on Sherbourne Lanes, this careful infill approach reaches no higher than seven stories compared to a neighbouring 8 story apartment. Working on a site with an existing community, efficiency in construction and minimizing displacement is key as demonstrated by the shortcomings of Regent Park. This informed the material selection — three main materials include precast concrete (panels and hollow core slabs), prefabricated CLT (panels and columns) and a layer of polycarbonate skin.
